Count The Legend of Dracula to be staged at the Averitt
Portraying Count Dracula, Bobby Wesner, top center, of the Neos Dance Theater blocks out a scene during a technical rehearsal of "Count ... the Legend of Dracula" at the Averitt Center for the Arts Wednesday. The Statesboro Youth Ballet have joined ranks with Neos Dance Theater to produce a modern adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel, featuring visual and audio effects, life sized props, and other unique surprises. Shows are Friday Oct. 17 and Saturday Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Emma Kelly Theater.
Following a well-received performance last spring, Neos Dance Theatre will reappear at the Emma Kelly Theater with an original, multimedia ballet “Count … the Legend of Dracula” on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. This re-envisioned version of Bram Stoker’s classic tale was written in collaboration with Emmy Award-winning writer Michael Thomas, who worked with Tina Fey on “Second City.” The production features fresh choreography, unique multimedia special effects and a rock soundtrack. “Throughout the ballet, we’ve taken liberties to alter the original story by accentuating the origins of ‘Dracula’ through the use of flashbacks and ‘time travel,’” said Neos director Bobby Wesner.
